Haven’t written you in a while. This has been a great year for the sport, and it keeps getting better, money grabs aside. I told you a while back that I was actually one of those guys that got roped into boxing when MayPac happened but even though it was a let down, so much happened over the years that I knew it was a matter of time before I get to see some action, and in the meanwhile I got introduced to guys like GGG, Canelo, Krusher, Ward, AJ, and Crawford.
Luis Nery clocks Shinsuke Yamanaka with a left en route to stopping THE RING bantamweight champ in Round 4 of their fight. Photo / Naoki FukudaWatched the Luis Nery vs Shinsuke Yamanaka fight on TV Azteca (which showed it live in Mexico), didn’t expect Luis to pull out the upset, considering he travelled to Japan to try and upset the champ. Some people we know in TJ that were close to the Nery camp told us that he wanted that fight specifically.
THIS AND THATJermell Charlo vs. Erickson Lubin was just announced. Seems early for Lubin, but he’s clearly special and they must be confident to put him in with Charlo. I love the match & only say “early” in the context of how fighters often wait nowadays before taking substantial risks. How does Lubin go about winning this fight? I see Charlo taking it, but with the nagging feeling that Lubin might be packing some surprises. It’s become hard by now to imagine Terence Crawford losing, period.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
